Westmeath Fianna Fail is to host its Selection Convention next Friday, September 11, in the Mullingar Park Hotel.
This is the first of two conventions to be held in the Longford-Westmeath constituency although the date for the Longford convention has not been confirmed yet.
Three people are in the running in Westmeath for the party’s nomination - sitting TD Robert Troy, Cllr Aengus O’Rourke and Emer Gavin from Athlone.
In Longford , Cllr Seamus Butler, Pat O’Rourke and Connie Gerety-Quinn are all battling it out for the nomination. However they have longer to wait before they go before delegates as the party has not yet decided when the convention will be held.
